Con Edison Revises 2000 Earnings Per Share

Consolidated Edison, Inc. [NYSE: ED] announced today (MONDAY, MARCH 19, 2001) that year 2000 net income for common stock has been restated to $582.8 million or $2.75 a share to reflect $32.1 million of Northeast Utilities merger-related expenses. In January 2001 the company announced earnings for 2000 of $601.6 million or $2.84 a share, after reflecting a non-recurring charge of approximately $130 million or $.40 a share relating to the company's nuclear plant, which returned to service in January following installation of new steam generators. Excluding the nuclear and merger-related charges, earnings for 2000 from ongoing operations were $686.1 million or $3.24 a share, compared with earnings of $700.6 million or $3.14 a share for 1999.
